@Louis - indeed currently the select method doesn't work correctly. We are aware of this and we are already looking forward on fixing this. You can regularly check the internal builds for fix.
@Sean - I'm not sure what example you are referencing. Please start new thread or open a support ticket with more details regarding the scenario. You should have in mind that with locked columns feature enabled you have two separate containers for holding locked and unlocked columns.
